Forum: movies Subject: "The Greatest Sci-Fi Cartoons": Public Domain?

I recently bought a DVD titled "Sci-Fi: The Greatest Sci-Fi Cartoons of All Time". I recognized several of the shorts as public domain and bought the DVD for stock footage. I haven't been able to determine the copyright status of all the tracks. I'd assume they're all public domain since this was a $1 DVD and so many of the cartoons aren't even sci-fi. The cartoons in question:

"Dodo in Japan" (Episode of DoDo, The Kid from Outer Space): Copyright notice reads "© ANROSTE FILMS LTD. MCMLXV"

Jasper in a Jam: No copyright notice visible, though some text on the title card was too small and blurry to read

"The Lunar Luger" (Episode of Colonel Bleep): Copyright notice reads "Copyright MCMLVII Robert D. Buchanan, Miami, Florida."

The Story of King Midas: Copyright notice reads "TELEVISION RIGHTS RESERVED / COPYRIGHT MCMLIII by RAY HARRYHAUSEN"

Granite Hotel: Copyright notice reads "Copyright MCMXL By U.M&M. TV Corp. / All Rights Reserved"

The DVD contains many other cartoons already available here, including "Electric Earthquake", "The Huffless, Puffless Dragon", "The Hole", "Duck and Cover", and "The Underground World".

my kitteh's psychic ability confirms that these are all PD!!!
WOOT!! (u realize that i am basing that only only on my kitteh, who was given mindalterin substances at the same time as the Grateful Dead and became extremely telekinetic also, just like the Dead. oh wait i meant extremely telegenic.)

i guess the Dead just got sorta wasted!!!
